for themselves, will we'll be welcomed as libattors, climb change is improving and government-run health care doesn't work, were repeated over and over again republican arguments seem as incomprehensible to democrats were as much misguided to them. the free market principles they took as given conflicted with the information we took every day from our constituents and the economists we consulted. news speed media preoccupation with lack of civility missed the point. i traveled withcongressional members to afghan and enjoyed they're company. we worked out together in the house gym. still more socializing with each other would not have breached khasm. congress is crippled from making bipartisan, strategic, public policy decisions. this is our greatest institutional weakness and defies simplistic cures. congress today is deeply divided because to each side, the opinions of the other make no sense. and, therefore, cannot be honestly held. interest group politics is still with us. fueled by unprecedented amounts of money, but its overlaid and often dominated by what i can only call world view poli

areas are worse than others. the government has a compelling interest to address this. they need to try to put rules on the table, not to take away the second amendment, but to enforce more rules to negate these happenings. host: the president several times reiterating that the proposal deserves a vote. what he think? caller: i agree. congress is our lawmakers. they put things in place and have to have a vote on this. i agree it should come to that. i believe in the second amendment. we have to make concessions here. host: do you think that congress will take up the votes and what the president is proposing? what do you ultimately think will, of that? caller: i think it will come to a decision. it has become very imperative to do something about it. at this time i think they are going to come to a fair decision across the board, how to address this and put rules in place that we have to negate thkis from happening. host: jim from twitter says this -- "vote on it and move it down, and then move onto something important." we go to ralph on the democrat'' line. caller: i agree with the aut
than they did in 2010 because the money made available to the labour welsh government has been used to fund their pet project to secure their majority in the assembly. does the prime minister share my concern that hard-working families in wales are being used in order to fund the labour party's pork-barrel policy in cardiff bay? >> my honorable friend makes a very good point. this government have made available money for a council tax freeze. that has the consequence that money for that freeze is available in wales, so people in wales will know who to blame if their council tax is not frozen. it is the labour assembly government in wales: they are to blame; they are the ones who are charging hard-working people more for their council tax. >> we all remember the prime minister's promise last october that he would legislate to force energy companies to put customers on the lowest tariff. will he explain why his energy bill contains no such commitment and why he has broken that promise? >> i have to tell the honorable gentleman that he is completely wrong. the energy bill does exactly
you know, that is 60% of what they want to take additionally out of the government. so why would we do that? where is the leadership that says we're going to get this stopped we have a special subcommittee that looks at this, oversight it, look at the bad actors in government ever going to demand people who make this decisions get fired and those not performing pay the money back. you can defraud the federal government. you cannot perform on a contract and you can do it with impunity and that is because members of congress are basically not willing for inexperienced to not know that you ought to be able to hold people accountable for what they say they are going to do. whether it's a federal employee, a procurement employee for the company that is providing. .. her tenure in the bush administration where she served as national security adviser from 2001 to 2005 and as the 66th secretary of state from 2005 to 2009. this is about 50 minutes.

number of people out there are circling the wagons. they see the government coming to collect their guns, and they're preparing for fight. the only thingy figure is that movement, crude as it may be to throw these two issues together toward personal freedom, toward individual autonomy is growing, profoundly on the right as well as the left. people want to make their own decisions. they do. and it may be dangerous for society as a whole to allow this when it comes to gun buying, but there row visit. one bet you can make on america we are still a cowboy country. we like to get around in our own cars, live in our separate houses, read whatever, see whatever, pretty much do whatever. and the difference here is doing harm to others. two people getting married doesn't hurt someone else's marriage, nor does it reduce its reverence or love. having a gun in the wrong hands, freedom for that person can mean death for lots of others. and that is where the desire for freedom jumps the tracks. that's where our cowboy urge need wyatt earp to come in and clean up dodge city. and that's "hardball" for n

willingly whether it's in government, whether it's in your office? i mean it just doesn't happen. so i think that the irony here, one of them, is that this man who many people associate with the middle ages is going to go down in history as a modernizer because he really showed this modern reality and was the first, you know, even 600 years ago when it happened, it happened to heal a schism. this is happening because he, a, sees we're living longer now, but, b, sees for all the incense and candlelight around the papacy, it's also a job, and there are certain requirements of the job, and if you can't do it, what he's saying and voting with his feet, is that you need to leave. >> well said. >> amen. >> i think it shows a lot of humility. in april of 2005 when pope john paul ii died, we broadcasted "hardball" from rome. as we closed our last show from there, let's listen. look at these people standing for hours, day and night, through the avenues of rome, packed together as if they had been caught and crushed in an industrial strength trash compacter. there they stood seeking no edge, plotting
